scott speedman

(born September 1, 1975) is a Britain-born Canadian film and television actor. He is best known for playing Ben Covington in the coming-of-age television drama Felicity and Lycan-Vampire hybrid Michael Corvin in the gothic horror/action Underworld films.
Encouraged by a friend to appear on Speaker’s Corner, a viewer open-forum run by Toronto’s City TV, Speedman professed interest in auditioning for the role of Robin in the film Batman Forever, which was being cast in Toronto at the time. Though the appearance did earn him an audition for the role, Speedman was not cast in the role. As the role of Robin was given to Chris O'Donnell, the audition did give Speedman the exposure he needed and quickly landed an agent and began auditioning forCanadian television and film roles.
His big break came when he got a call from a casting agent in the United States that wanted him to audition for a new television series called Felicity. Portraying brooding college student Ben Covington opposite overnight star Keri Russell as Felicity, Speedman received much acclaim on the popular series. Soon after Felicity, Speedman began to get offers for more prominent roles while working on the series. In 2000, Speedman landed the role of Billy Hannan opposite Gwyneth Paltrow in the film Duets.(wikipedia)
